The University of South Carolina football team will kickoff against Ole Miss next weekend at 11:00 a.m. CDT, according to conference officials.

The SEC Network will provide coverage of the game.

The Rebels (5-3, 1-3 SEC) are coming off of a 31-16 loss to Auburn.  In their second season under head coach Matt Luke, the team needs one more victory in order to become bowl eligible for a second consecutive year.

Head coach Will Muschamp’s Gamecocks (3-3, 2-3 SEC) are coming off of an open date.  They play Tennessee this weekend at home in the first of several must-win contests if they hope to play in a bowl at the end of the season.

Ole Miss is one of those “must-win” games.

Saturday’s early kickoff from Vaught-Hemingway stadium in Oxford, Mississippi will be the sixteenth meeting between these two teams.  Ole Miss enjoys an 8-7 edge in the series, including a 3-2 advantage in Oxford.  South Carolina has won the last two games in the series, though – a 31-24 victory in Oxford on October 4, 2008 and a 16-10 win in Columbia, S.C. on September 24, 2009.

Ole Miss has not defeated South Carolina since the 2004 season.
